Aum (Om): The Song of the Cosmos and Celestial Harmony

Aum (Om) isn’t just a chant that yoga instructors use to open                                             and close a yogakeplersolarsystem class. It is the “sound” of the divine energy that reverberates throughout the cosmos. It is the universal prana, the vital energy or breath of life, much like the sun is the earth’s source of life giving energy. Interestingly, scientists have discovered that ripples on the surface of the sun are vibrations of energy – sound waves! Yes, the sun, and likely all the billions and billions of other stars out there, are singing their songs out into the universe. This vibrational hum of the stars cannot be heard by our human ears, but its vibrational energy can be felt when we are in deep meditation or in a meditative state of awareness of the oneness of all.

The three sounds of A-U-M also reflect the three main aspects of our personal astrology, our Ascendant, Moon, and Sun signs, respectively. As explained in The Prashna Upanishad:

AUM has three sounds. Those who meditate on a come back to earth, led by the Rig Veda, to lead a pure life, full of faith and love. Those who meditate on the first two sounds, a and u, led by the Yajur Veda, go into the lunar world, full of pleasure, from which they come back cloyed to the earth again. But those who meditate on a, u, and m are led by the Sama chants to the sun, where freed from sin, as a snake sheds its skin, they see the supreme Lord, who lives in all.

With the help of Pythagoras’ mathematical discovery of the ratios of musical harmony, Johannes Kepler discovered that the elliptical movements and velocities of the planets in our solar system correspond to harmonic ratios and to the musical intervals of a complete scale. The music of these spheres, along with the song of the sun, create the celestial harmony. Our solar system and the whole universe is alive with prana, vibrational energy, strings, the Higgs Boson particle, or whatever manifestation of God resonates with each of us, from which all is created. Whatever that vibration may be, Om, Aum, Amen, Shalom…let’s all together sing the song of the cosmos!

Sounds of the Sun…

Sounds of the planets in our solar system…
